PHILADELPHIA -- A neighborhood activist who spoke out about the vandalizing of dozens of cars near his home now has been arrested in the case, police say.
David Toledo is accused of slashing tires in the neighborhood, Northeast Detectives Capt. John McGinnis told NBC10.
At a press conference Wednesday evening, police said Toledo had been arrested and charged with two counts of felony mischief, 47 counts of criminal mischief, false reports and other related offenses.
Police say they questioned Toledo extensively on April 16, the same day the most recent vandalism was reported on Aldine and Teesdale Streets as a dozen or so more cars were targeted.
Toledo has spoken to NBC10 several times since coverage of tire slashings in the area of the 4000 block of Aldine Street and surrounding roads began to surface in February. The vandalism dates back even further than that, according to neighbors.
"I hope the cops get them before the neighbors find out who it is because something bad is going to happen," Toledo said after some cars were vandalized in mid-March. "My wife said 'somebody is watching us, watching the cops' because when they're here nothing happens."

Funny how these accusations are virtually always made by Obama voters.
Wonder where they picked up the laziness, lying, and inability to produce?
He who smelt it, dealt it.
Yeah, go figure. Wonder why? lol....
Resist We much!
No way! What are the odds??? Mark me down as totally flummoxed.
SEIU? I think they have a night course, Surviving on Sloth.
This guy Toledo has an outstanding chance for Secret Service duty.
Today, we've got a bunch of random Mayfair trash walking around slashing tires.
How I pine for the good old days...
